Saint Louis University students or employees who are experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms, have tested positive for the virus or are a close contact of someone who has, should take the following steps.
Information for SLU Students
Your COVID-19 Case/Exposure Will be Handled by Student Health
Contact the Student Health Center immediately at 314-977-2323 if:
- You have tested positive for COVID-19.
- You think you have been exposed to a COVID-infected person. You are required to respond to a phone call, text or email from our Contact Tracing team in 12 hours or less if you are identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive.
- You have symptoms that could be COVID-19. Symptomatic students may obtain testing through the Student Health Center. A student health nurse is available 24/7 to assess symptoms and schedule a COVID-19 test. Do not come to campus or class until you have received COVID-19 testing.
All close contacts will need to be tested — regardless of their vaccination status — unless they have tested positive within the past 90 days.
If you know or suspect you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or you are identified as a close contact through the SLU contact tracing process, you may obtain free COVID-19 testing through our COVID-19 Response Team.
If you've tested positive for COVID-19, the Student Health Center will provide a timely clearance for students to return to class/campus.
